Americans In Israel Call Upon Ambassador Oren Not To Attend J Street Conference


michael-orenThe American Israeli Action Coalition (AIAC) today urged Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren not to attend the J Street conference scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C. next week. AIAC is a non-partisan, non-political, issue-oriented NGO which was formed in Israel to represent the united voice of the more than 250,000 American citizens living in Israel on issues pertaining to the continued safety and security of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide.

AIAC Chairman Harvey Schwartz stated: “Although J Street describes itself as a ‘pro-Israel’ organization, the American-Israeli community is well aware of the truth: that J Street ia a far left, radical, anti-Israel group, at least partially funded by Arab and Moslem sources, whose purpose is to undermine the safety, security and continued vitality of the State of Israel.

“Numerous U.S. Senators and Congressmen, having been made aware of the truth about J Street and the very strong anti-J Street views of the American-Israeli community as well as the large majority of America’s Jewish population, have already withdrawn their consent to appear at this conference”, Schwartz continued. “Under the circumstances, it would be unconscionable–and clearly send the wrong message–for Ambassador Oren or any other Israeli government official to even attend this anti-Israel event, much less address it”.

AIAC is devoted to effectively recruiting and activating the more than 250,000 expatriate American citizens in Israel in order to create a united voice that will be heard by the governments and people of the United States and Israel on issues that pertain to the continued safety and security of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide.
